1 Introduction 




Be unique. Do your own thing. Brandon 
does its own thing by being the best in many 
activities. We were number one in baseball 
and soccer in 1980. The dance club earned 
high honors in statewide competition. In- 
dividual student achievements could be 
found in various areas, academically and 
socially. Doing our own thing is being the 
best. 

Of course, everybody had his own version 
of how to do his own thing. Some kids lifted 
weights, some threw their's around, and 
some just gained it. Other students used the 
current clothes and hairstyles to exhibit 
uniqueness. Kneesocks to no socks, cornrows 
to rows of braids, faded jeans to designer 
jeans, surf shirts to T-shirts. An outfit to fit 
every mood. 

Being an individual among the hundreds 
of students and faculty was easy, but we also 
learned how well we could unite and work 
together. Bus drivers, maintenance, 
cafeteria, administration, guidance, and 
faculty members all pitched together doing 
their things to make it easier for all of us to 
do ours. That's what it's all about. Being 
part of a team. Being part of Brandon. 




2 Theme 




Let's begin at 
the beginning. 



OPPOSITE TOP: Trick or treat? No! ! It's just Mrs. Gravely's art 
club students doing their own thing by celebrating Picasso's birth- 
day the week of October 20-24. Didn't someone say that great 
artists are "different'^" LEFT: Bassy Jefferson, number 34, is 
probably saying something important, but Carl Royster is too ab- 
sorbed in the game to pay attention: Perhaps he is thinking about 
the eventual victory over Independence as the Chargers do their 
thing on the gridiron. BELOW: The classroom is the perfect place 
to do your own thing as students in this class demonstrate. You 
might even think that they were celebrating their teacher's birth- 
day. BELOW LEFT: While doing his own thing, Mr. Wilcher's 
secret desires surface at the Future Homemakers of America dance. 
Wearing traditional attire of an Arab oil tycoon, "Ahab" longs to be 
"healthy, wealthy and wise." Well, two out of three ain't bad! 




Theme 3 




v,^ 



OPPOSITE TOP: The 10-minute tardy rule was 
a controversial subject throughout the year, but 
the first time, you were usually warned. Miss 
Kozares smiles as she calmly gives a detention for 
tardiness. OPPOSITE BOTTOM: Rah. rah, hey, 
hey! What are we doin' here anyway'^ The excite- 
ment of getting out of class boosted the 
enthusiasm at the first pep rally, where the flag 
girls won the approval of the student body with 
"flying colors." ABOVE: Do's and don't's, and 
rules and regulations always accompany the first 
week of classes. Mr. Early takes time out to let a 
seventh grade class know what he expects. Do they 
look like they're listening'' RKJHT: The first PTA 
meeting combined with the fir.st open house to give 
parents a chance to check out the school. Student 
art work in the main lobby added color and variet- 
to the walls.

New year brings 
new activities. 



Everything must start some place, and 
some things must start over. Brandon 
launched the new school year with the first 
pep rally in September and the traditional 
open house in October. Fall brought an im- 
pressive first to the Chargers via the football 
team, which gave us our first football victory 
in the school's history. First fire drill . . . first 
detention . . . first broken bone . . . first 
dance . . . first report card . . . first-year 
teachers. Each of us tackled and overcame 
many of these obstacles while DOING OUR 
OWN THING. 




Introduction 5 



OPPOSITE TOP: Forms, forms, and more 
forms! The first day was spent filling in stan- 
dard information. Sounds easy, but did you 
ever have to spell Zelda Smuckerlitz'' 
OPPOSITE BOTTOM: Inspections can give 
you the jitters especially when your hat won't 
stay up, your dandruff is dropping, your gloves 
have lipstick smears, and your shoe is untied! 
But don't worry. Maybe he wont notice. 
RIGHT: Lori Lawson isn't letting Wilson 
Edwards get away from her at the first dance. 
But like the song says, it doesn't last forever. 
BELOW: Brandon (Jold was never more spec- 
tacular than when the flag girls dressed out for 
the first time. Even the weather couldn't stop 
them from doing their own thing. 





*i Intrixiufliun 




Life at Brandon 
varies to meet 
student needs. 




Before we knew it, firsts 
becomes lasts. Some of us 
became experienced NJROTC 
cadets, while others learned the 
art of skipping practice due to a 
"dentist appointment," scrib- 
bling homework two minutes 
before it was due, and asking a 
pretty freshman to dance. 
Seventh graders knew the 
ropes, and eighth graders were 
perfecting their techniques. 
Ninth graders were going to 
Brandon classrooms for the last 
time but looking forward to the 
first day at Green Run High 
School. Be it for better or for 
worse, everyone was doing his 
own thing.

The years pass quickly. As we grow from in- 
fant to toddler, from preteens to teenager, and 
from teenager to young adult, the differences 
are noticeably distinct. In the seventh grade 
we were still slightly childish, still carrying 
elementary school habits along. Some of us 
still wore the clothes that our parents put out 
for us. During eighth grade we began to break 
away, becoming slightly more independent. 
Still listening to voices, we trudged through 
the year in the middle. By the ninth grade we 
were at the top. We had reached our goal — 



head of the school. Three years of growing and 
changing. But it was really worth it. 

For ninth graders who have been at Brandon 
for all three years, much can be said. We can 
honestly say that we have had the toughest 
breaks. We have felt the warmness of a brand 
new school and have helped to bring it off the 
ground. 

After making our marks, we depart proudly 
shouting that we are the first class to go all the 
way through Brandon Junior High School.

III Inlnxlucliiin 




OPPOSITE: .Jill Redenbaugh is one of many students who 
sports the "preppy look." Plaid and pleated skirts, button-down 
shirts, kneesocks, and blazers are all part of the ever-changing 
fashion fad. TOP: RoUerskating is one fad that never seems to 
go out of style. Brandon students rolled out individually and for 
club-sponsored skating parties. This unidentified skater 
prepares to take off for a "disco roll." BOTTOM LEFT: 
Cornstalks are found on a farm, but cornrows are found on the 
heads of many Brandon students. This popular hairstyle, 
adorned with beads, ribbons, and feathers, takes hours to 
prepare, but students admit that the end result is worth it. 
BOTTOM RIGHT: Brandon students feel that jogging gives 
you a run for your money. It can be enjoyed both inside and out, 
and for many different reasons. For example, an unexpected 
sprint from one class to another can be a rewarding experience, 
especially if you get there before the bell rings! 





Introduction U 




Politics gets in 




This was the year for poHtics. From the earliest 
primaries through the conventions, the debates, 
the election and finally the victory celebration, 
students and faculty became involved in the 
political arena. Friendly, and sometimes not so 
friendly conversations were heard in the 
classrooms, the halls and the cafeteria. 

In the spring of 1980, the Social Studies 
Department planned mock nominating conven- 
tions. Delegates were elected, platforms present- 
ed, and speeches were heard by the delegates on 
the floor and the student body in the bleachers. 

Many schools hold mock elections where stu- 
dents only express their preferences, but we, at 
Brandon, do our thing differently. 

We were the only school to participate in con- 
ventions, those places where the realities of 
politics are actually formed.

our blood.

TOP LEFT: What would a convention be 
without a speech or two? Dana Wilhams was 
selected to give the keynote address for the 
Democratic Convention. MIDDLE: Delegates 
scramble for balloons as the Republican Con- 
vention comes to a frantic climax. TOP 
RIGHT: Sam Richards delivers his state's 
votes to the chair. BOTTOM: The candidates 
for president, Jimmy Carter (D) and Ronald 
Reagan (R). 



Introduction 13 



Doing our thing 
with responsibiUty. 



When we entered school so many years 
ago, we were there to learn something. We 
first drew pictures of "what we did last sum- 
mer." We discovered as we progressed from 
grade to grade through elementary school 
that we were learning and preparing our- 
selves for the future although the picture was 
a little fuzzy. We were told to be "in- 
dividuals," and yet we were told to "get 
along with others" — two contrasting modes 
of behavior: 

We have now reached the point where this 
contradiction is beginning to make sense. 

"Doing your thing" gives us great freedom 
and yet also places great responsibilities 
upon us. We, at Bradnon, through our 
classes, have learned the basics of these 
responsibilities. The activities we have par- 
ticipated in afford us a practical proving 
ground. 





M InUoduction 





OPPOSITE ABOVE: Rain does not dampen the spirits of Leisa 
Bennett but the loss of a football championship to Plaza does. The 
team fought rain and strong winds as well as its opponents. As one 
of the players asked, "Have you ever punted into a hurricane*^" 
ABOVE: Clubs are not all fun and games. For a club to function 
properly, constitutions and bylaws are a must. Here, Mr. Garrison 
explains the governing documents of the Student Industrial Arts 
Association. LEFT: Pride in earning one's own money is felt by 
many students at Brandon. Today's paperboy or babysitter may 
just become tomorrow's executive. OPPOSITE BELOW: They 
call themselves the "Bleacher Bums." The pep club certainly 
makes itself known at all sporting events. 



Introduction 15 



While the classroom is designed to 
foster intellectual curiosity and 
knowledge of specific academic dis- 
ciplines, these pursuits are only a 
part of a student's total school life. 
Often the extra-curricular and co- 
curricular activities do as much to 
shape a student's life as any other 
aspect of school. We, at Brandon, 
are offered a wide variety of ac- 
tivities to suit each person's needs. 
There are school-service type ac- 
tivities, music activities, 
occupation-oriented activities, 
special interest activities, and even 
groups for those who wish to explore 
other cultures and lands. 

To make a definite list of the of- 
ficial and unofficial organizations at 
Brandon would be a monumental 
task. As soon as the Hst is com- 
pleted, a new club is formed to meet 
another group's needs. 

As well as ongoing activities, 
special ones are enthusiastically 
formed. The yearly trip to sample 
Chinese food is enjoyed by Mrs. 
Clay's students. Out-of-town ven- 
tures for science field trips are 
eagerly anticipated by Mrs. 
Schucker's classes. Mr. Lowery took 
groups of students to the opera. 

When all of these are put together, 
a picture begins to form of the ex- 
citing times we have shared this 
year. These remembrances will con- 
tinue to bring us pleasure for many 
years to come.

Group's Theme Carried Out. 

With the yearly theme "Sail on", the SCA did just that from 
one project to another. There was constant activity with ex- 
change programs with other junior high schools, dances, fund 
raisers, assembly programs and contests. Thanks to the coordina- 
tion of the SCA and the efforts of the entire student body, Bran- 
don not only met its goal for the United Fund but exceeded it by 
over 300%. 

The SCA leadership designed the Christmas Omnibus 
program, the first of its kind in Virginia Beach. Three programs 
were concurrently run as the students rotated among the events. 
Because of good planning and interesting activities, the entire 
assembly was a tremendous success.

Last year at a tapping 
ceremony, fifty-three students 
were picked because of their ex- 
cellence in leadership, 
scholarship, citizenship, and 
personality to be a part of the 
National Junior Honor Society. 
This year's club tried to prove 
itself by donating to the Joy 
Fund, donating money for a 
talking box for a Brandon stu- 
dent, and holding a luncheon 
for the faculty on an in-service 
day. (See picture on right.) 

Mrs. Schucker and Ms. 
Mallery were the club sponsors 
and spent time with the stu- 
dents encouraging them to do 
their best.

Student activities 21 



Art club stresses creativity. 




The art club has gathered to ex- 
press themselves in many original 
ways. They are also a service 
organization which utilizes art to 
enrich others by making them 
aware of the culture around them. 
Several activities were sponsored 
this year such as the "Sail-On" con- 
test, the "Teddy Bear" contest, the 
project for the King's Daughter's 
Hospital and the celebration of 
Picasso's birthday. 

The officers for this year were 
President Terry Standish, Vice- 
President Markwin Galdo, 
Treasurer Robin Medlar and 
Secretary June Eaton.

LA. fosters today's technology. 



The purpose of the In- 
dustrial Arts Club is to 
develop individual growth 
while providing services to 
the school and to the com- 
munity. Students have 
many fields of interest that 
include money-making 
projects to raise funds for 
club activities, field trips 
to areas of related interest 
and community projects to 
provide a need to others.

22 Student ictivitiM 



Brandon hosts city forensic competition. 




Members of Brandon's 
drama club served as hosts for 
the city-wide forensic contest 
this year. The club, under the 
sponsorship of Mrs. Troutman 
was active in many other pro- 
jects. One of the high points 
this year was the one- act play 
of the fall. Students continue 
to work hard, devoting many 
hours after school to dramatic 
pursuits.

Debate team captures second place. 



In only its second 
season, the Brandon 
debate team, under the 
tutelage of Dr. David 
Bailey, placed second in 
the city-wide debate con- 
test. "This win represents 
a lot of hard work for the 
students," commented Dr. 
Bailey of their accomplish- 
ment. The team also took 
highest honors in the 
Green Run Invitational 
Debate Contest.

Student activities 23 




The combined efforts of the home 
economics department led to the 
success of this year's F.H.A. Mrs. 
Pridgen, Miss Newman, Mrs. Clark, 
and Mrs. Wilson spent many late 
hours planning activities and projects 
for the students. The most outstanding 
of their projects was the selling of 
cookbooks to help buy a voice box for a 
Brandon student. They were a special 
part of the annual food drive. With all 
their projects, the club found time for 
fun things like skating parties. The 
group has been recognized as one of the 
most outstanding in the state.

Student activities 25 



Students learn with a foreign flair. 




Students belonging to 
the International Club are 
provided the opportunity 
to learn more about other 
countries and cultures. 
Their many activities for 
1980-81 included collecting 
money for UNICEF, spon- 
soring a faculty Christmas 
party and participating in 
numerous projects during 
the foreign language week. 

Club sponsors were Miss 
Schatz and Miss Grigg. 
Also serving were Presi- 
dent Janice Matlotz, Vice- 
President Shelli Mc- 
Gowen, Treasurer Vicki 
Muherin and Secretary 
Laura Salazar.

As they say, ''Curses — foiled again!!" 



The gentlemanly 
sport of fencing is mak- 
ing a comeback in jolly 
olde America. Here at 
Brandon, the fencing 
club can be observed af- 
ter 4 P.M. stretching 
and exer cisi ng to 
prepare for their ac- 
tivities. The basic moves 
of fencing might appear 
simple to the casual ob- 
server, but there is more 
than meets the eye in 
this complex art. 
Touche!

This year the Surfing 
Club sponsored three 
dances and staffed the 
coat room to raise 
money. They viewed 
great films, gaining tips 
from fellow surfers, 
traveled to beaches, and 
had their own t- shirts 
printed up to advertise 
their enthusiasm. They 
plan to compete with 
other schools when 
weather permits. 

The club is sponsored 
by Mrs. Linehan and 
Miss Erode.

Body building's 
more than brawn. 



The new Brandon Weightlifting Club was 
formed to promote physical fitness and body 
development by progressive resistance exer- 
cises. The goal of the club includes building 
stamina and promoting good nutrition and 
health habits. In addition to the various ac- 
tivities associated with the club was the at- 
tendance at the Mr. Chesapeake contest in 
December. 

The club is sponsored by Mr. Bruce Cahill.

Club Increases Pep During Games 



Under the leadership 
of Miss Vanderveen and 
Mrs. Linehan, the pep 
club was able to provide 
moral support for the 
sports events at Bran- 
don this year. They 
adopted the name 
"Bleacher Bums" dur- 
ing the football season, 
and were close to the 
players during all sports 
events. The "Bleacher 
Bums" aptly assisted 
the cheerleaders during 
the year. Red hands and 
hoarse voices were only 
the small parts of 
assistance provided, for 
the colorful characters of 
the pep club are the true 
spirit of Brandon.

Flags Add 
New Color 



In its second year, the 
flag team marched with 
the band, performing in- 
tricate maneuvers to wave 
our team on to victory. 
They lent a festive mood to 
both games and parades 
after dedicating numerous 
hours of practice and drill

New Ski Club Formed 




Off to a flying start, the 
ski club traveled to 
Massanutten this winter. 
Under the able leadership 
of Miss Hubler, Miss 
Schatz and Mrs. Linehan, 
members improved their 
skills on the slopes while 
experiencing excitement 
and sharing friendships

Sharing is Part 
of B.C.F. Theme 



The Brandon Christian Fellowship con- 
tinued this year with the dedication to 
provide students and teachers with the op- 
portunity to share in Christian activities. 
Club members participated in several pro- 
jects which served the community, studied 
the Bible, experienced the fun of 
fellowship through putt putt outings, 
movie trips and a pizza outing. Club spon- 
sors were Mr. Parsons, Mrs. McCoUey and

Science study leads to fun. 



Students in the science club 
had an opportunity to broaden 
their interests, to acquire new 
knowledge and to have fun at 
the same time this year. They 
traveled, explored and diver- 
sified their knowledge under 
the leadership and guidance of 
Mr. Vaughn and Mrs. Martin 
while enjoying themselves 
thoroughly. 

Mr. Vaughn and Mrs. Mar- 
tin were assisted by President 
Sharon Marsh, Vice-president 
Floderick Bly, Treasurer Tim 
Mead, and Secretary Michelle 
Johnson.

Games club 
makes debut. 



Off to a running start this year was the 
games club; what may seem simple 
somehow becomes complex when students 
are gaming with such precarious activities 
as Dungeons and Dragons, but great fun it 
is indeed! Survival demands quick think- 
ing and keeping your wits about you con- 
stantly. The size of this new club alone 
speaks clearly of the magnitude of interest 
students have for gaming. But then, sheer 
size is necessary in a club which zaps so 
many with paper in sandwiches or other 
special fatal designs proported to 
ehminate enemies in these games.

The Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training 
Corps consists of a group of dedicated cadets who 
are committed to the future of America and to 
the preservation of the qualities that make us a 
nation to respect. Self-discipline, responsibility 
and integrity are just a few of the important 



characteristics emphasized in the corps. Whether 
in the military or civilian pursuits, the NJROTC 
training provides several keys to future growth of 
our youth, and, therefore, to the growth of our na- 
tion. 




Students give time 
to service project. 



Service to self is ordinary; service to others is indeed 
extraordinary and special. The cafeteria helpers 
provide service to others. Their group is not self- 
serving, but rather serving to all of us. They devote 
their time and energy to the smooth running of our 
cafeteria, and without them, all of us would be at a 
loss. Their dedication and responsible contribution to 
our school is the cornerstone of the mature adult in 
our society.

Students help make 
school run smoothly. 

While school is a place to get an education from 
others, several groups of students also come to 
give of themselves. The student assistants in the 
library, cafeteria (see preceeding page), 
guidance, clinic and office devote an hour each 
day to help maintain the smooth running of our 
school. Routine calls are handled, books ac- 
counted for, students located, tables and chairs 
straightened and new students shown around the 
school. 

Without this group of dedicated assistances, 
the work load of the school staff would be made 
more hectic and burdensome.

Chorus offers many opportunities to 
the Brandon student. Different groups 
utilizing different talents make it easy 
for one to fit in. During the school year 
the choral groups entertain the stu- 
dents, faculty, and community with 
terrific concerts. The chorus students 
work hard and put in many hours of 
extra practice time to make them a 
group that Brandon is extremely 
proud to claim.

Bands achieve 
in competition. 



Mr. Johm Hamilton works with some of the 
most talented members of Brandon's student 
body. They perform in concerts, football 
games, parades, and competition. The stu- 
dents show their ability by receiving superior 
ratings in competition. Drum majors Carol 
Weigold, Steve Boardman, and Daren Brady 
lead the group through the fall season of foot- 
ball and parades. The flag bearers added much 
color and flare to the group's performances. All 
put in many long hours coming to school long 
before the other students. 



The Charger marching band added a new dimension this year. A group 
of girls practiced many long hours and became Brandon's first ma- 
jorettes. Their work paid off as they enhanced the halftime shows and 
parades.

Sports at Brandon has given its 
students the abiHty to do their own 
thing. Boys are offered a selection of 
football, basketball, wrestling, soc- 
cer, baseball and track and field. 
The girls choose from field hockey, 
basketball, gymnastics, soccer, 
Softball and track and field. 

Sports develop character, self- 
confidence and self-esteem. The 
athletes at Brandon put in many ex- 
tra hours practicing and playing. 
The coaches work with the athletes, 
caring about their class work as well 
as their athletic abilities. The stu- 
dents learn to work together to make 
each team successful. Many athletes 
develop into school leaders not only 
on the field but also in other school 
activities. 

Brandon has been successful in all 
its sports programs. Backed by an 
enthusiastic administration, 
qualified coaches, and the pep of the 
student body, the sports program 
has grown in all it offers to a Bran- 
don Charger. 

In our brief history, we have won 
city championships and have 
benefited from the blending of in- 
dividual student talents into 
rewarding team spirit. Brandon's 
sports program is a prime example 
of how sports help students achieve 
and develop into well-rounded 
citizens.

Team improves 
as season 
progresses. 

The 1980 Field Hockey team blended 
youth and experience. Under the 
leadership of Coach Terri Gadsby the 
team developed into a unit that surprised 
many teams. The girls worked hard dur- 
ing the season and as the season 
progressed, they played the role of a 
"spoiler" by tying other teams. The 
games they lost were heartbreakers but 
they were tough, aggressive, and spirited. 
Hard work developed many friendships 
and the girls worked together as a team 
with Cristi Crockett and Diane Brothers 
as co-captains.

Team posts 
best season 
yet. 



Coaches Don Dailey, Randy Sterling, 
and Russ Fletcher put together Brandon's 
best football season since the school 
began. In the first two games the 
Chargers scored 58 points while holding 
their opponents scoreless. The remaining 
games became all important with the 
team ending the season in third place. 

Hard work by all helped Brandon to 
achieve its final record of 3-3-1. Captains 
Bassy Jefferson and Chris Lanon worked 
hard to lead the chargers to a successful 
season. The Chargers played exciting 
football and the fans are anxious for this 
year's success to spill over to next year.

Wrestling team provides excitement. 

Under the guidance of Coach 
David Early, the wrestling team 
had many successful matches. 
Despite injuries and inex- 
perience, the team finished its 
season with an upset over 
Bayside. The captains of the 
squad, Mike Presnell, Chris Lan- 
nom and Doug West proved good 
leaders as they were victorious in 
most of their matches. The squad 
provided a lot of excitement and 
the Charger fans enjoyed each 
match.

Brandon's first city cham- 
pions — boys' soccer and 
baseball. Spring sports are 
composed of different choices: 
boys' and girls' track, boys' and 
girls' soccer, baseball, and 



Softball. The fields of Brandon 
are filled each afternoon with 
bodies, whistles, coaches, balls, 
and equipment. Everyone 
works hard to develop that 
Charger Spirit.

Extra! Extra! Brandon's first city cham-

WilHam Bell guided the Chargers to first 
place in only two seasons. Outstanding 
teamwork, talent, and practice con- 
tributed to the championship. 
Goalkeepers David Bass and Victor Brant 
steadied the defense with help from Mike 
Presnell and John Tecson. Chris McVey 
lead the team in scoring with a season's 
total of eleven. 

The team played in thunderstorms, hail, 
cold, and heat with their best effort com- 
ing against Kempsville Junior. This was 
the first defeat for Kempsville in two years 
and paved the way for a city championship 
for the Chargers.

The girl's soccer team began its season with a 
blend of youth, enthusiasm, and inexperience. 
They developed into a contender and finished 
third in the city. Coach Joy King felt that the 
season was highly successful and looks forward 
to the future. The scoring was led by the team's 
"Most Valuable Player" Susan Strobach with 
thirteen goals. Aggressive defense was 
demonstrated by Carol Macdonald, Sharon 
Strobach, Felicia Lyons, and the "Best Defen- 
sive Player", Lisa Brunner. 

Teamwork is the basis of a good soccer team 
and the Chargers developed into a team that 
worked as a unit. As the season progressed, in- 
experience became experience and the 
Chargers soundly defeated Bay side in their 
final game with a score of six-zero.

Boys' track team 
increases skills. 



Coach Russ Fletcher attempts the un- 
believable each year — that of channeling 
various skills, personalities and talents 
into a team unit. Just the assembling and 
disassembling the equipment for a track 
meet is a job in itself. The team practices 
pole vaulting, long and high jumping, disc 
and shot throwing, and the running 
events. 

Brandon's boys' track team had many 
people contributing to the season. Mike 
Presnell's long distance running was one of 
the high points of a meet. Many boys put 
in extra long hours since they were also 
playing other spring sports. Brandon is 
looking forward to having many of the 
team members returning next year.

individual accomplishments. 




A team of youth, inex- 
pe rience and 

enthusiasm made up 
the 1980 girls' track 
team. Coaches Lois 
Holleman and John 
Walden guided the 
team to many per- 
sonal achievements. 
The inner drive to 
run, practice and im- 
prove drove the team 
onward. The group 
was small and each 
performer represented 
Brandon in sometimes 
two or three events. 

Outstanding achieve- 
ments were made by 
Jennifer Armstrong in 
long distance running. 
Gwen Snowden led 
the team in individual 
points. The meets 
were always exciting 
to watch and many 
loyal Charger fans 
stayed to cheer them 
on to do their best. 



Girls' track 69 



Youthful team develops into cohesive 



Coach Randy Sterling 
developed total ball players on 
this year's team as the girls 
gained experience in many dif- 
ferent positions. Pitchers CeCe 
Hightower, Dana McDonald, and 
Chris Schaff worked hard for the 
Chargers. Dana McDonald was 
the "Most Valuable Player" as 
she led the team in hitting. Most 
of the Chargers were seventh and 
eighth graders who developed 
into first rate ball players as the 
season progressed. They were 
successful in many games and an 
upset of Independence Jr. was 
one of the high points of the 
season. 

Softball played in the schools is 
fast pitch and the girls spent 
many long hours practicing 
hitting, base stealing, sliding, 
catching, and other elements of 
the game.

In two short years, the Charger's 
baseball team achieved the goal of 
every other team — a city co- 
championship. Coach Don Daily 
spent mornings and afternoons 
molding the team members' in- 
dividual talents into a championsip 
unit. The Chargers gave the fans 
many exciting games and ended the 
season with an 11-3 record. 

Eddie Pagan's powerful right arm 
kept Brandon a constant winner and 
the bat of Jeff Woolard and Sam 
Maroon gave the team plenty of offen- 
sive power. Brandon scored as many 
as 14 runs per game and many times 
the super defense kept the opponents 
scoreless. 

The final game with Kempsville Jr. 
proved to be the biggest thriller as in 
the bottom of the last inning, Bran- 
don erupted to score four runs and 
clinch a victory.

"Hey, you a new kid here?" How 
many times does a Brandon student 
ask this question? Walking through 
the halls, sitting in class, or scoping 
during lunch, the average student 
spies a new student once a week. In 
just three short years Brandon has 
grown to become the largest junior 
high school in its system. 

Brandon students, almost 2,000 
strong, come in every size, shape, 
color, and description. We have 
some who are huge sitting beside 
others who are extremely petite. 
Some students excel in general 
academics, others in athletics, 
music, forensics, and the various art 
forms. We have natural leaders and 
natural followers. 

It is this wide range of individual 
characteristics exhibited by our stu- 
dent body that gives Brandon its 
strength and character. No matter 
how divergent our students, each 
one contributes to the overall ex- 
cellence demonstrated here. Our 
major strength is in our differences. 
The healthy interaction fostered at 
our school helps to build a strong 
foundation for life. Students with 
different backgrounds, ethnic and 
cultural heritages and interests 
workmg together, build not only an 
excellent school environment, but 
also learn from one another to 
become quality citizens.

Remember those eighth grade 
'boys? You just couldn't stump 
them. "Name the quarterback of the 
Washington Redskins, 1979 season." 
"What is the scientific name for the 
flat worm phylum?" 

Competition between the boys 
and girls generated the enthusiasm 
needed for these academic assem- 
blies. Teachers wrote the questions, 
team members pressed buzzers with 
their answers, and the audiences 
roared as the eighth grade boys 
defeated the eighth grade girls, the 
seventh grade girls were victorious in 
their competition, and the ninth 
grade contest saw another male vic- 
tory. 

Have we proved intellectual 
superiority with the Brandon Bowl? 
Well ... we surely had fun.

Ninth Graders Get Ready 
For Green Run High 



The ninth graders grew with Brandon from 
the first years to see it become the largest 
junior high school in the city. They have 
developed into leaders in every organization. 
They have been the core of the Charger 
Spirit and their ideas and deeds will con- 
tinue long after they are gone. The class of 
1984 will be the first total Chargers because 
they were here when the school opened and 
spent their junior high years with us.

Caring is what it is all about. When the Future Homemakers of America 
chapter learned that one of their members was unable to speak, they 
decided to do something about it. They heard about an electronic device 
which synthesized speech by pushing buttons. The girls decided that their 
Christmas service project would be devoted to raising the necessary funds 
to buy a Handi- Voice for Harriet Pierce. Now Harriet is able to be un- 
derstood by everyone, not just those able to sign. Shown with Harriet are 
the two top fund raisers, Laurrine Leonidoff and Christy Cody.

Kim George, S.C.A. treasurer. Treasurers are 
often thought of as being staid but this is cer- 
tainly not true of Kim. She is not only S.C.A. 
treasurer but also president of the pep club. 
She explains that she likes "getting involved 
with school spirit." The summer finds her en- 
joying her hobbies of softball and swimming.

Brandon. He monitors almost all sporting 
events and dances. He also has substitute 
taught — now there is a man with many 
talents.

The eighth graders are the glue that 
keeps everyone together. They are 
developing their leadership talents and 
evolving into the leaders for the school in 
the coming year. They find that their 
minds go in many directions and realize 
the many opportunities that wait for them.

Seventh grade largest 
class ever for Brandon. 



When they arrived, boy did they arrive. Brandon was swamped with seventh 
graders. In fact the largest class ever at Brandon. They felt a little out of place in 
the big place. So many halls, rooms, locker combinations, and directions to 
remember. They went through a culture shock. During their first months they 
developed into loyal Chargers, proud to be at Brandon. They went to the dances, 
supported the athletic teams, and joined many organizations. They made the 
transition from lowly seventh 
graders into the leaders of the 
future.

"Can I go to the clinic?" "Where's 
the Hbrary?" "How long before the 
bell rings?" "Can I go to the 
bathroom?" "Why?" These are only 
a few of the many questions that a 
member of the faculty and staff of 
Brandon answers every day. The 
faculty has a genuine concern for the 
student body as demonstrated by its 
attendance at athletic events, 
dances, and other extracurricular 
events. Teachers have even been 
known to ride donkeys to promote 
school morale, enthusiasm, and 
spirit. 

Not all of a teacher's work is done 
in the classroom. They monitor the 
halls, the bathrooms, the cafeteria, 
and even places no one else has 
thought of monitoring. A Brandon 
teacher was even noticed stopping 
some kids who were running at a 
Safeway! A staff of secretarial, 
guidance, cafeteria, maintenance, 
and bookkeeping personnel cement 
the school together. There is even a 
nurse to tape us together when we 
fall apart. 

Brandon's faculty and staff has 
grown to be one of the largest in the 
city of Virginia Beach. All these peo- 
ple blend their many talents 
together to guide the students at 
Brandon.

Coordinating the events and people of a junior high 
school is an awesome job and Brandon is no exception. 
The exception is our administration. The principal and 
his assistants work hard to give the students and faculty 
every opportunity to express themselves and make the 
day at Brandon fun, as well as academically fruitful. 

Mr. Atkinson is the leader of the group that does so 
much for the school. From academic problems to 
athletics, he is supportive and is the center of the 
Charger Spirit. Mrs. Edison works closely with the 
teachers and students, scheduling and coordinating 
academic areas. Mr. Hoffman deals mostly with student 
problems and the community. Mr. Urquhart's respon- 
sibilities lie with the school plant, the athletic program 
and student discipline. All of the administrators overlap 
one another, however, in their duties. 

The administration here at Brandon, we are con- 
vinced, is the finest in any school. It is their support and 
devotion that help to make Brandon number one. 



E. E. Brickel 

Division Superintendent 



AdminUtration 161 



Many people add 
their support. 



"Good morning, Brandon Jr. High." Often 
the first contact the public has with us is ac- 
tually with the office secretaries. But these four 
women do more than answer the phones, type 
letters and balance the books. Collectively they 
probably know every intricate in and out of the 
daily life at Brandon. Without this un- 
derstanding and the excellent way they apply 
it, the smooth operation of the school would be 
in jeopardy. OFFICE STAFF: D. Sykes, B. 
Thomas, B. Gourley and S. Forsythe. 





Some types of jobs, if done properly are seldom 
noticed. However, when they are not, everyone 
seems to be aware of the fact. Such is the job per- 
formed by Brandon's custodial staff. Rarely are we 
aware of all the work and effort put forth by this 
group of people. It is because of them that we have 
a clean, neat and comfortable place to work in. As 
well as their normal functions, they also help 
teachers obtain materials for teaching and stu- 
dents get books out of jammed lockers for learning. 
Because of the excellent way they perform their 
duties, we have a school plant of which to be 
proud. Custodial staff; FRONT: J. Smith, J. 
McCoy, R. Tripp (head custodian); SECOND: D. 
Smith, D. McCoy. 



You walk into the cafeteria in the morn- 
ing and the gf»d smells just seem to jump 
out at you. The unthankful job of feeding 
2000 people is one no average person would 
volunteer to do much less do as well as these 
women in the cafeteria. Problems abound. 
The price of food has become astronomical, 
no two people seem to have the same tastes 
and then the bureaucratic red tape is 
enough to choke anyone. But with all these 
and many more problems, the cafeteria 
staff fxrforms excellently and always with a 
smile. Cafeteria staif; FRONT: M. Foster, 
E. Pablo, M. McCoy. M. Kramer, T. 
Arrogante (mgr), A. Cirucie, I. Moring; 
SECOND: M. Cassity, A. Mateling, N.

What will you be doing five years from now? Most of us are lucky if we know what we will be doing five hours from now. The 
guidance department, however, is the group of professionals who attempts to see into each student's future and guide him down a 
path aimed at success. Under the direction of Mrs. Pedersen, the staff counsels students both with their academic lives and personal 
ones too. The job done by the counselors today will determine to a large extent the plans and futures of their charges tomorrow. 
Guidance staff; FRONT: T. Noden and N. Kettner (sec); SECOND: C. Austin, F. Pedersen, G. Spears and B. Catling. 



If you think keeping track of 
your books in your locker is a 
pain in the neck you should 
try keeping track of over 
13,000 of them. To compound 
problems, these books are 
available for everyone to 
check out. Ordering, catalogu- 
ing, shelving, maintaining 
and checking in and out of the 
library materials is all in a 
day's work. The librarians 
also must be able to assist stu- 
dents find materials for their 
classwork and teach classes in 
library usage. How do they do 
it all? As the librarians ex- 
plain it, "No problem." I 
guess when you're 
good — you're good. Library 
staff: A. Bruton, C. Broome, 
J. Hadley (sec) and C. Clay.

Faculty 155 



Brandon faculty dedicated 
to quality education. 



Brandon's faculty has grown by leaps 
and bounds. It now numbers more than 
one hundred people. The members' 
responsibilities include teaching, plan- 
ning, duties, and the best one of all — car- 
ing for the kids. The staff spends extra 
time chaperoning dances, attending 
athletic events, sponsoring clubs and club 



activities and all the many unwritten but 
expected duties that go with the turf such 
as patrolling the halls and guarding the 
bathrooms. 

Brandon's staff is one of the best anyone 
can find anywhere. Everyone works 
together to make our school the best place 
to work.

I knew it was going to be one of those days. I got up this 
morning, my head hurt. I had a flat tire on the way to school. 
We had a department meeting just before I remembered my 
progress reports were due. Three kids in my first bell class 
got into a shouting match. Then there was the matter of the 
cafeteria. In my fourth bell class, QC^c of the kids flunked my 
test and blamed it on me. I was observed during my next 
class; the one with all the problem children. I had to call six 
parents after school before my night class in abnormal psy- 
chology. And to think my mother warned me about this.

Alright children, settle down. Who 

says teachers aren't just average peo- 
ple? Some students see them in a 
store and ask, "What are you doing 
here." They seem to think teachers 
live at school and sleep in the closets 
at night. So once and for all let's set 
the record straight — teachers are 
like everyone else. Now, about the 
other gentleman . . .

I just can't resist a pretty face. Sometimes the outfits worn to the annual donkey basketball 
game are as wild as the game itself. And speaking of wild, you ought to see the players. No self- 
respecting normal person would attempt to get on the back of a donkey trained specifically to ^J 
sit down at the wrong time, bite the rider, vault the player himself through space or who knows ^ 
what else. But then, who said anything about being normal. "Say cheese!!" \\^k

OK now, stop your clowning. Sometimes you wonder about 
people. It is bad enough that some folks have trouble putting 
on makeup and fixing their hair, but you would think that 
they would know how to dress for something as serious as the 
academic life here at Brandon. Maybe it would help if 
someone were to lay out her clothes in the morning.

Who is that motorcycle gang leader 
anN'way? Certainly he cannot be a mem- 
ber of the Hell's Angels. The old 
stereotype of gang toughs being the only 
bike riders has come to a screaching 
halt. With the price of gasoline heading 
for the sky, new methods of transporta- 
tion are a necessity. While many people 
are car pooling, others are unable to do 
so because of scheduling problems. Here 
is one solution to the problem. With his 
crash helmet on his head, his boots on 
his feet and his "We teach the children" 
sticker on his bike, Mr. Lowry rides off 
into the sunset after another long day at 
school.

Ho, ho, ho. He's many things to many people. To the students, he's the man who runs the 
school, listens to their troubles and is seen picking up paper in the halls. To the teachers, he is 
the one to solve problems, set school policy and run meetings. To his assistants, he is the one 
who guides and expedites. To the community, he is the representative of Brandon. 
To all of us, Mr. Atkinson is a friend, a man with whom we are proud to be associated.

These halls hold many 
memories for a Brandon 
Charger. They are quiet now 
but in their solitude ring the 
voices of more than 2000. With 
those of us who are leaving go 
the fond remembrances of 
classes, teachers, and friends. 
To those of you who will return

again is yet the potential to 
create those events which will 
become your legacy. 

A school is a building made 
of brick and mortar. Brandon, 
though, is an experience 
moulded of people, ideas and 
true caring.
